Hawaii: House Passes Trigger Modification Ban

On April 10th, the Hawaii state House voted to pass Senate Bill 2046 as previously amended by the Committee on Judiciary.  The amendments made in the House were rejected by the Senate and the bill is now in conference committee.  

Senate Bill 2046, sponsored by Senator Karl Rhoads (D-13), would make it a crime to manufacture, import, sell, gift, lend, or possess certain trigger modifications.  It contains vague language that could criminalize firearm modifications that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.
